Not the last post, but....

Things have been slowing down; I'm sure you've noticed.  It's not that I'm not interested in keeping up the blog; but it's been getting hard to get up interest in THIS blog, if you follow me.

Part of the problem is that this blog never really had a clear purpose.  The earlier posts show that; it bounced from being a "how-to" to a photo journal, and ended up being mostly a place to vent my spleen.

So then I started spinning off other blogs.  So each had a purpose, but each was soooo specific, that sometimes I don't know where a thing should be posted.

So I'm starting fresh.  This blog will stay up, and I'm sure that occasionally I'll post something that fits MAN or MANIAC.  And I'm sure that I'll occasionally update Camera Ephemera.  The Theatre Scene is chugging along, so don't fret on that.

But for now, I'm going 'Round the Bend.  I hope you'll join (the kinder, gentler) me.

Tea Party Threatens Teen Over Debate

The Daily Koz reports that Amy Myers, a high school student from Cherry Hill, NJ, has recieved numerous threats for challenging tea party darling Michelle Bachmann to a debate.
"I got a call from the principal that the main office received threatening mail," said the computer programmer and single father. - Courier-Post, May 20, 2011
I guess the Tea Party - or at least some of the extreme right-wing whackos who support it - understand that Michelle "Constitution, shmonstitution" Bachmann lacks the intellectual capacity to stand up next to a high school student without looking as batshit crazy as she in fact is.

They Say It Ends Tomorrow

Reflecting on the end of the world, this song kept running through my head....
